I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design


Elizabeth on Jul 09, 2016

Really good quality

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Great support!

Dorothy on May 09, 2016

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Same as original, just cheaper

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

Hans Wegner's Papa Bear Chair

Hans Wegner's Papa Bear Chair

There are no products in this collection.

With a luxurious look and unprecedented comfort, Hans Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair is one of his most recognizable and popular designs. The somewhat unconventional name of the chair is based on a critic’s review which described the experience of sitting in this lounge chair as a “soft bear’s hug”. Cosy armrests and wings which are the most recognizable features of the Papa Bear softly close around the person sitting in it, thus certainly justifying the name of this classic of Danish design from 1951.

  • Available in both classic and bold colours
  • Leather, wool and fabric upholstery
  • Base of walnut, oak, maple or ash
  • Multiple variants to fit your personal style

A Modern Wing Chair

This lounge chair is more lightweight and more modern-looking than the traditional heavy wing chair. There is enough space to sit in many different ways, and this was precisely the core idea of Wegner’s design. Known for his focus on functionality and comfort, Wegner always took great care to keep his stylish designs functional and useful for the everyday life, and Papa Bear Chair is no exception. This classic of modern Danish design is created with relaxation and enjoyment in mind and Wegner made sure that the shape of the chair isn’t limiting in any way.

The Construction of Papa Bear Chair

The Papa Bear is built on a strong frame where the chair’s legs extend upward in a shallow curve, gradually merging with armrests, thus exemplifying Hans Wegner’s masterful usage of wooden shapes and joints, also visible in his other classics like the Wishbone chair. Designed by Wegner, the Papa Bear’s frame was manufactured by PP Møbler, a joinery company whose collaboration with Hans Wegner started with Papa Bear Chair, and lasted for many years. Furthermore, it was PP Møbler that resumed the production of Papa Bear Chair in 2003 on the 50th anniversary of the chair’s production.

The padding of the chair is made of different materials including springs, so no matter how you sit in it, you will always get the best possible support. The armrests are designed in such a way that you can put your legs over the side of the chair, or below the armrests.

Designed with following dimensions:

Papa Bear chair dimensions
Height 101 cm
Width 90 cm
Depth 95 cm
Seat height 42 cm (oak, cherry and ash)


Papa Bear Chair with Foot Stool

Want to take the comfort provided by the Papa Bear up a notch? Then you can buy a Papa Bear foot stool, which Wegner specifically designed to match with this lounge chair. Now you can put your feet up while watching TV in the evening or reading newspaper on a Sunday morning while enjoying in this timeless classic and the epitome of comfort. The foot stool is made of the same materials as the chair, so it matches it perfectly. 

Price Variations

The price of an original Papa Bear Chair varies depending on the model, with the leather one being the most expensive. The price of a new chair is around 116.000kr (£13.630 / $17.415).

However, you can obtain the chair at a significantly lower price if you chose to buy a copy or a second-hand model. A good replica costs about a tenth of the price of an original, but keep in mind that you can only buy it from a retailer in Ireland.

A Papa Bear Chair is not cheap, but once purchased, it will last for many years to come because of its high quality, and this is true for both the original and the replica.

Papa Bear Chair Replica

One of the rather popular replicas is known as Skipper Papa Bear Chair, produced by Skipper Furniture. It might not be as good as the original, but is a very popular model which can also get rather expensive. However, you can buy an exact replica of the Wegner’s classic from Ireland, where the copyright law applies only for 25 years, so exact replicas are legal to produce and sell.

Second-Hand Papa Bear Chair

If you’re looking for a second-hand chair, eBay and other second-hand websites specialized in designer furniture might be a good bet. If you’re lucky, you can find one in good condition. If you have the courage and budget to make a bid on the chair, the auction websites such as Lauritz can be a great place to look.

When buying second-hand, be sure to check the upholstery and padding thoroughly before making a purchase, since reupholstering is quite expensive. If the chair is not in good condition, you should negotiate the price down, or maybe even forgo the purchase. In the last couple of years, there is a tendency to raise the prices on second-hand models despite a large amount of models available on the market. If the chair is being sold as an original, it must have a label from Danish Furniture Makers’ Control.
